About Me

Thank you Democratic Underground for keeping me sane for the last four years. I think I was probably the longest lurker here. I started following DU during the Dubya administration. I was first attracted to the "Top Ten Conservative Idiots of the Week." I've been following along ever since. I always felt guilty for not participating, but refrained from doing so because I already spend way too much time online. However, after recent events, I just can't sit back any longer. I had to log on and thank you folks for all that you do. I'm a retired TV newscast director with forty years experience and more than eighteen thousand broadcasts under my belt, most of them live. I now travel the country (when I can) shooting landscape, astro and wildlife photography. You can see some of my photos at Ross-Kestin.Pixels.com or on Instagram at @oldguywithacamera. Thanks again! Ross K. Grumpy Old Guy

More roadscape photos

I had a really hard time picking my best images for the "Roadscape" photo contest. Please indulge me and allow me to share some of the other pics I was also considering. (Do NOT tell me if you think I picked wrong).

Please note that these images were not reduced in size for the contest rules. They are all original size.

Valley Drive in Monument Valley

Point Mugu

Movie Road in the Alabama Hills

The Filosena Ranch, (There was an old west shootout here).

A dashcam shot from the Valley of Fire

A horizontal view of Mount Robson

My lovely wife Legger on the Yellowhead Highway. (I am a very lucky man).

My neighborhood Osprey

Hi folks,

I've been posting my bird pics over in the photography forum, but I thought I'd start posting them here as well.

An osprey came to visit. (This one is for elleng).

I looked out my window and saw this beauty about a block away. Everything else gets put on hold when an Osprey comes to visit. I'll try to post some more pics tonight.

Not for the squeamish

You can't just walk by a perfectly good spider when you own a cool new macro lens.

So cool.

I'm jazzed because my airshow pics are showing up on DU's front page under the "cool" heading. I'm not sure how that happens, but it's nice to see.

Here are the rest of my airshow pics.

I shot more than six thousand frames, but I'm worn out from editing pics. These will have to do for a while.

The teams are the U.S.A.F. Thunderbirds, the R.C.A.F. Snowbirds, and the U.S.N. Blue Angels.

Thank you all for your support. Enjoy!
